UrbanAZ presents MEGA 104.3 radio Funk Fest starring Cameo, Zapp Band, Rose Royce and Lakeside beginning at 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 12. Pick up any Cameo compilation and it will serve up a solid history of late-20th century funk and R&B. Vocalist Larry Blackmon founded the group in 1974 and made the charts with hits such as "Word Up," which became the best pop song of the year. The Zapp Band will have you on your feet and dancing like it's 1980 again! It is a family affair for all who remember the group's musical genius, Roger Troutman, may he Rest In Peace. The Zapp legacy lives on with its current lineup cooking up new material and continued radio play of Zapp classics. Rose Royce is considered by many fans to be one of the most underrated groups of the '70s. A resurgence of their music has kept the group's classy funk and soul flowing well into the 21st Century.The Lakeside journey began close to three decades ago and it's still going strong. The group's 1978 party song "It's All the Way Live" shot to the top 5 on the R&B charts.
